I thought that was the 5 door gross weight and curb weight is 1300kg (2850 lbs)
For a short towing distance, I'd bet the car can handle it without hurting anything. The question I'd ask, is will you have enough traction? Might need to add some weight
I'm gonna check some numbers and get back in a bit.
Ok, I was a little bored and wondering where my college education went, so I made a spreadsheet that determines how much you can tow depending on incline angle, weights, and friction coefficient. This assumes no acceleration going up the hill, already going at (slow) speed. If someone checks this for me that'd be awesome, apparently I forget basic physics faster than you can shake a stick at.
here's the spreadsheet with my estimate: http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=b...4e75f6e8ebb871
Of course the biggest unknown is the friction coefficient (and possible hill angle), so it could be way off, but you might not be able to tow anything at 40 degrees.
